Can't shake this cold

Thursday, January 19, 2012

Well DH and I can't seem to shake the last of our colds. It is very up and down. We'll feel pretty good for a few hours, then tank. We both have coughs and general snottiness. My voice comes and goes. I haven't gotten a lick of exercise in for more than a week. That is really going to be tough when I start running again. I am hoping to be better next week.

A week with a cold

Saturday, January 14, 2012

I came down with a cold. Stayed home on Wednesday, worked most of Thursday, and made it through the day Friday. I sure am tired of this cold. I was hoping to get a run in this weekend but I don't think the congestion will allow it. I will fit a walk in somewhere today though, maybe while the washers go round. In spite of spending the week eating things that sound good (jalapeno poppers and chocolate donut holes) and getting NO exercise after Monday, I did still manage to lose 0.2 of a pound. All things considered I think that's pretty good.


Run #64 Trying to rev up the immune system

Monday, January 09, 2012

I was hoping I was just having allergies when my nose started running last night and my throat got a bit sore. I felt ok initially this morning, but then the sore throat came back. At 10:15 I figured I should either go for a run or shower and put my work clothes on. So I decided to try a run even though my sore throat was making me choke. I managed a 6 minute interval, a 5 minute interval, and a 3 minute interval. Hopefully that will rev up the immune system and I can fight this off. Lots of cooties flying round the office again :-( Total run time 14 minutes, walk time 17 minutes.


Run #63 Working my way up again

Friday, January 06, 2012

Today I ran a 13 minute interval, then a 3 minute interval, then did 2 one minute sprints. Total 18 minutes run time, 14 minutes walking. I think I have my pedometer correctly calibrated now and if so my distance is 1.93. So I need to add another 1.17 miles between now and June 3....and maybe get faster.

My new shoes seem good, and I love my fancy toe socks (by Iniji, with rainbow stripes).

My runs this week have been somewhat tainted by the dead coots I keep seeing, in pieces. Ick. Makes me wonder if something fishy is going on.


Run #62 First run of the year

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

I had more of a break than I intended over the holidays, but it is what it is. I knew today would be a harder run so I decided to mix it up with something new, so I warmed up for 5 minutes briskly walking, then ran as fast as I could for a minute, then walked for 2 to recover. Repeat 5 times. Then I did a 3 minute interval at my normal pace, then walked back to work. What was I thinking?! 27 minutes walking, 8 minutes total run time, and I am sore! The sprinting is really tiring and was definitely work. Perhaps I will save the sprints for the end on Friday, and aim for 3 not 5...
